Maybe checking the reallocation sector count from the drive’s S.M.A.R.T. info would help. Regular read-write tests don’t tell much, since the drive internally performs CRC checks and reallocates logical sectors (as accessed from the host) to spare physical sectors in case of excess errors.
Maybe your drive received some damage during transport and observed write errors may indicate new sector reallocations.
…or that particular 5400 drive is simply too slow regarding seek times…
